Parra was reinstated from the paternity list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

While he's back with the team, Parra will not immediately return to the lineup as the Rockies are facing lefty Hyun-Jin Ryu on Tuesday. Parra figures to continue starting regularly against right-handers at least until David Dahl returns, at which point Parra may take on a role at first base. Dahl has been increasing his activity but remains shut down from baseball activities.

The Rockies are expected to activate Parra (personal) from the paternity list Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The transaction should be made official in the hours leading up to the 10:10 p.m. EST start time for the Rockies' game Tuesday against the Dodgers. The Rockies are expected to option reliever Shane Carle to Triple-A Albuquerque in order to clear a spot on the active roster for Parra, who hasn't played in the last four games while awaiting the birth of his child. It's expected that Parra will settle back into his usual duties as the starting left fielder, pushing Raimel Tapia back into a reserve role.

Parra (paternity list) remains out of the lineup Sunday against the Giants, MLB.com's Thomas Harding reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra was placed on the paternity list Friday, so by rule, Sunday is the last game he can miss. Raimel Tapia will get the start for the afternoon contest, and after a team day off Monday, look for Parra to be activated before a two-game series with the Dodgers.

Parra was placed on the paternity list Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Raimel Tapia was recalled in a corresponding move and is starting in left field Friday against the Giants. By rule, a player placed on the paternity list must miss one game, but no more than three games. Parra is 12-for-35 (.343 average) with one home run, two walks and seven strikeouts so far this season.

Parra was placed on the paternity list Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Raimel Tapia was called up Friday to take over in left field for the Rockies with Parra away from the team. Parra also sat out of Thursday's contest, meaning that he is eligible to sit out one additional game before returning to the club. With that, Tapia could see two starts over the weekend before Parra draws back into the lineup.

Parra remains out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Raimel Tapia is set to take over in left field in his first major league game of the season, which will keep Parra on the bench for the second consecutive game. Parra is off to a hot start this season, and he has excellent career numbers against San Francisco starter Johnny Cueto, sporting a .368 batting average with six extra base hits over 38 at-bats, which makes his absence from the lineup somewhat unexpected.

Parra is not in the lineup for the Rockies' game against the Giants on Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Instead of throwing out the left-handed-hitting Parra against Madison Bumgarner, the Rockies opted for righty-hitter Dustin Garneau to gain a more favorable matchup. This would be appear to be an ordinary day off for Parra, who likely will be back in the Giants' lineup on Friday.

Parra went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in Colorado's 10-6 loss to the Dodgers Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Taking full advantage of David Dahl's injury to begin the year, Parra is hitting a cool .440 as Colorado's current everyday left fielder. Parra is certainly an attractive short-term fill-in in deep mixed leagues while he's swinging a hot stick, and he can remain useful all year long on NL-only formats.

Parra is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Stephen Cardullo takes Parra's place in left field against Los Angeles southpaw Hyun-Jin Ryu. In his time replacing David Dahl (ribs), Parra will sit against many left-handed pitchers.
